Company Culture

Most were on edge due to lawsuit and knowing that over 1000 employees would be downsized and / or transferred to Plano Texas

Support from management

My manager and support team were very supportive and also with Collabera where they would come and meet with me and provide support.

Teamwork

We had meetings regularly for different groups which were weekly or even daily due to my position.

Freedom to work independently

Very true and would respond to my chat or phone call immediately. I received a outline of what goals and targets I needed to accomplish and did it by working independently.

Internal Communication

Most communication was via Chat system with my managers from Plano Texas and supported over 1000 people in the business process face to face and over the phone or chat.

Attitude towards older colleagues

All were busy but once they knew your value you would be respected.

Career Development

Collabera provided free training online for many certifications.

Overall compensation for your work

There was discrepancy or suspicion that contractors were paid more than the employees, but it was not true.

Environmental Friendliness

All appeared very friendly.

Work-Life Balance

They had flexibility for work shift and shuttle from the metro link train or the major bus station.

Job Security

I knew my contract was only for 6 months, due to the large downsize and my employer, Collabera was slow in this area to transition me to another assignment. This is why I kept my prior job as part-time instead of full-time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management and recruitment need to focus on keeping their employees with assignments without break between assignments.

What I like about the company

They work with you on being prepared for the assignments and treat you like a human being.

What I dislike about the company

Large pool of recruiters so your recruiter can change and each one is different. Perhaps they should all work on specific regions on a team to prevent duplication of efforts.

Company Culture

Teamwork

Internal Communication

Be prepared to go dark during the interview stage and upon hire. Once employed, I went 6 months without being contacted, and as stated above, they churn through people more than any firm I've interacted with in over 20 years as a contract worker. For a global firm, it is unprecedented. During submittal, you'll have the pleasure of learning you weren't selected unless you call for several weeks - 100% of the time. Nobody notifies you, and if you call, you'll find out the person you were working with is "no longer there", though nobody informed you. I experienced this over a 2 year period, and with over 10 submittals. Once off contract, the redeployment team exhibits the same style. I have 20 years experience in a management capacity, with 12 as a consultant. This issue is cultural.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Where I come from, this behavior is entirely disrespectful. People risk their career by choosing you - you behavior is condoned and irresponsible.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get a strong management team in here before it is too late. Understand the culture you're working in.
